Biden is going after the mother of all tax hikes, though it is deftly spread across a number of different areas so it takes significant effort to add it all up. That is partly by design, but partly by necessity, since the wealthy tend to face taxes across a number of different parts of their financial lives—income, capital gains, corporate taxes, inheritance. The reality though is that if you combine all of Biden’s proposals, wealthy individuals living in states with high income taxes (like New York) could face tax bills of over 80% when accounting for all the areas above. This would include a new top personal income tax rate, new higher corporate tax rates, the elimination of “step-up basis” in inheritance taxes (and potentially a higher inheritance tax rate), and state taxes of over 14% in New York.


FINSUM: This only precedents for this level of taxation in US history were during World War I and World War II, when tax rates got into the 90% percent range. Even then, though, there were easy loopholes and deductions to allow individuals to avoid that top rate.

Infrastructure investment has changed vastly in the last few years. Not only is the sector at...see the full story here

There may be a lot of noise around valuations and inflation, but ask yourself a question: do you think the tech sector is going to grow into a bigger part of the economy over the next few years? The vast majority of investors would say yes, and if you are in that camp, then it may make sense to commit a considerable part of your portfolio to the space. Inflation may rise, but the reality is that the fundamentals of the tech sector have been very healthy and have grown nicely. Don’t let short-term noise and anxiety distract from that.

With this in mind, check out O’Shares Global Internet Giants ETF (OGIG). The fund is at the forefront of helping advisors invest opportunistically in companies that are leading the economy’s digital transformation. Which means—you guessed it—these are high growth businesses.1 The fund’s constituent companies include those in the digital advertising, social media, e-commerce, and cloud services sectors. The average trailing twelve-month revenue growth2 for an OGIG3 constituent was 40%, versus 11% for the Technology Select Sector Index, and 22% for the Nasdaq 1004.

Over the last twelve months, OGIG outperformed traditional tech indexes by over 40%5 (in what was already a fantastic year), which speaks to its rules-based approach’s ability to select high growth, high appreciation stocks. The fund is also a way to invest in global growth, not just the US. If you want to invest in the Internet Giants of the future, look at OGIG.
